Stampotique challenge - Text

Oooh time for another challenge over at Stampotique and this weeks theme has been chosen by the incredibly talented Sarinda - this is what Sarinda has to say about her theme. 

Sarinda here and I am hosting. I love using text in my work it is a fun way to get texture without a whole lot of work. With that I have a background tutorial for you to try. Click over to my blog Aggregate Memories. Wishing you a very creative and inspiring day.

I decided to use Shoot for the Moon (7114) and Great Moon (3044) - I used distress inks in Picked Raspberry and Mustard Seed over some glossy cardstock, spritzed with water, then used the same inks through some sequin waste and a flower mask. It was then cut out in the shape of a large star.  The Great Moon was stamped on some old text paper, cut out and adhered to the star and outlined with pencil.  Cut out some little stars, adhered and again outlined. I then added lines and dots to the edges of the star with black pen, added the quote stamp Shoot for the Moon, added a little star to the bottom of the moon with black cotton and here it is....

Do pop over to Stampotique and see all the amazing designs the Design Team have created
Have a good day
